Based on our Sympa TALK 2020 panel discussion about change management, we wrote down the most crucial insights from our amazing panelists in three blog posts:
- HR’s newfound roles and responsibilities?
- What will HR be called in the future?
- What type of competencies will be needed?
Great speakers, interesting topics. New ideas burst into my mind.
A really nicely organized virtual event. Thank you Sympaticos!
The experience was great, music, colours, whole atmosphere.
Thank you for a great performance, these all are very useful topics.
